According to legend, the name of the city is derived from the Latin name “Draco/Draconem” (dragon): a bishop, called Saint Hermentaire, killed a dragon and saved people.

Another very well presented, original and interesting post. I also find Ignacio Darnaude's website a fascinating treasure trove of information from the last 60 or 70 years.
Now to the actual story itself.
10 feet tall beings? Well the actual sources seem to suggest this was only of a silhouette. But it also states the beings were in excess of 2 metres (or elsewhere 2.5 metres). Which is closer to 6' 6" to around 8' tall. About the height of the goalposts in football. They also seemed to be wearing protective suits and communicated by strange whistling sounds.
So was this an elaborate hoax?
If not then the beings seem to be humanoid and protected from the environment. The suit would also add more height to whoever was inside. Could the strange whistling sounds simply have been their communication equipment inside their suits giving of residual signals.
Beings in protective suits could mean what? It's certainly how we'd go about exploring another planet. Does that mean it was aliens? I don't know. Would there be any reason for human beings in protectives suits to be up there scaring people?

Does not seem to add up...Scared out of your mind equates to chance to escape and run like hell not looking back..
Meanwhile in the Fiat car they were not going too well because the boys came to watch two gigantic robotic red legs crossing the road, the car turned off and suddenly came alive, the steering wheel turned on its own and the driver could not do anything.

There are good and bad tales out there, and it is the bad ones that scare the bejesus out of me. For example the human mutilations. You just don't know what type of encounter you may have. If true, these boys are either extremely brave or incredibly stupid to go trying to find them.
